Is never too early to get ready for Hurricane Season



This year I decided to get ready early, I had the black olive tree in the front of my house trimmed by the people that cut my grass. For $300 dollars he cut back the tree and took away the branches, a bargain this time of the year, as hurricane season gets closer the price goes up.
The black olive tree is a fast growing tree, every two years I have to cut it back so it won’t be a danger to the house incase we get hit by a storm.
If I had to do it again I would had pick a smaller tree for the front of the house but now I stuck with what I have, to cut this tree I need to get a permit from the County and promise to substituted tree with a County approve tree, to much of a hassle.

What is in bloom in the garden this week?
The Crown of Thorns

I cut down my 40 foot tall ash trees four years ago. They were healthy, but they had weak crotches and I was afraid a hurricane would place them in my bedroom. I am very happy that I don't have to worry about that anymore.

Hurricane season would be scary. We have tornados our way which aren`t nice either to worry about. I love your starburst bush. So nice to see all the flowers and your gardens on another cold white day here :)

I was wondering if you had a recent picture which shows it growing back nicely?

Thanks,
